Screening: Sepuluh Tahun Sebelum Merdeka by Fahmi Reza

Place: Carcosa Seri Negara, Kuala Lumpur
Date: September 16, 2017
Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm
Admission: FREE

‘Jalan Merdeka’, is an exhibition that aims to explore the different and challenging journeys leading to Malaysia’s Merdeka dating back from 1896 to 1957 through photography exhibitions, art murals, talks and discussions as well as film screenings.

This week, Jalan Merdeka presents a very special Malaysia Day Screening – the 10th-anniversary screening of Sepuluh Tahun Sebelum Merdeka, a 35min award-winning documentary about a moment in Malaya’s history where a nation-wide ‘hartal’ or protest took place.

Unknown to many, October 20th, 1947 was a historical day in the rakyat’s constitutional struggle for independence from British colonialism. This documentary chronicles the events that culminated in the Malaya-wide ‘Hartal’ day of protest against the undemocratic Federation of Malaya Constitutional Proposals devised by the British Colonial Government and the UMNO, and the rise of the people’s democratic movement in Malaya, ten years before Merdeka.

Kenduri Kendara Theatre

 Place: Makespace, Quill City Mall, Kuala Lumpur
Date: September 14 – September 17, 2017
Time: 7pm – 10pm
Admission: RM45 / Students – RM25

As part of a wedding kenduri, a newlywed couple’s family usually invites guests to feast, to greet the couple, and also to visit the couple’s bedroom. Kenduri Kendara guides audiences through the same three settings to explore the themes of gender, faith and the frailty of human connections within these intimate spaces.

This 3-in-1 interactive presentation consists of a play (audiences enter the home of a young Muslim couple and follow their marriage), an experimental self-portrait (audiences explore the cultural object of the tudung and perform their own gender, memories, and identities through it), and a mutual feeding ritual (audiences are invited to feed each other through a very local way of transmitting food to mouth, that is, by hand – audience who prefer not to participate are welcome to observe).
